  • All MLB team

    Major League Baseball announced today that it is launching an official “All-MLB Team,” recognizing the top performances by players in the 2019 regular season. The inaugural All-MLB choices will be announced on Tuesday, December 10 during the Baseball Winter Meetings in San Diego.

    Like most of MLB’s more recent awards and honors, the All-MLB team will be selected via a combination of a fan vote and a panel of experts. As for the fan vote, starting today and continuing through December 3 at 5:00 PM Eastern, fans may vote for their 2019 All-MLB choices. Like the other fan votes, fans can vote more than once — once every 24 hours on this thing — at MLB.com.
    The non-fan-voting portion of this will be decided by a “decorated panel of media members, broadcasters, former players and other officials throughout the game.” The panel vote will be weighted equally to the fan vote. There will be a first team and a second team All-MLB squad.

    The nice touches: there is no need to balance American League and National League. It’s all just one team (and the second team) regardless of league. Likewise, outfield will not be separated by left, center and right field, allowing people to pick the three best outfielders, full stop. There will be a DH, five starting pitchers and two relief pitchers for both the first and second All-MLB teams.

    Interesting. I'm surprised they haven't done this yet when the other three major leagues have done something like this (All-NBA, All-Pro NFL, NHL All-Star 1st and 2nd teams).

        "Likewise, outfield will not be separated by left, center and right field, allowing people to pick the three best outfielders, full stop."

        I HATE THIS.

        This is stupid and lazy. The three outfield positions are distinct outfielder positions.

          They probably did this as a way to get both Bellinger and Yelich on the team.

            Probably, but that's short-sighted and no less wrong.

              Anything hs to be better than the NFL's recent 100th anniversary all-time running backs. The defensive line/ LB list is a tad better, but still not great.

                It's largely a re-hash of the 75th anniversary team. Only Bronko Nagurski was dropped.

                  But that's the point. Nobody from the past 30 years is making the list. No Rbs that have debuted in the past 29 years? Only three that have debuted in the past 40 years? What?

                    No Tomlinson? Is it just top 5? It should be something like Brown, Payton, Sanders, then Dickerson/Smith/Tomlinson/OJ. Then short career guys like Motley, Sayers, Campbell and Terrell Davis can get a shot along with career guys like Edgerrin James, Jim Taylor, Curtis Martin and maybe Frank Gore or Franco Harris or even Tony Dorsett, Marshall Faulk or Adrian Peterson

                      Or even Marshal Faulk? Faulk is the biggest snub you listed, except maybe LT.

                      It was a top 12, overly romantazised.
